Please Do Not Purchase Any X-10 or any Wireless Hidden Camera Before Reading This Information

For all our visitors and potential customers we would like to assist you in your search for the right surveillance camera for your needs. Daily we receive new orders from folks who have purchased X-10 wireless cameras and were totally dissatisfied. Shown below are several pictures of so-called hidden surveillance cameras youíll find while searching the web. At a quick glance for a lot of folks they look like a great option. Allow us to give you an in depth explanation of how they work. First of all unseen is the camera lens that uses a transmitter to send wireless signals to a receiver that in turn needs to be hard wired to a VCR or to get best results to a Digital Video Recorder. (Without being connected to a VCR or a DVR you will not have any images at all.)  What these "security stores" donít show in their ads is the receiver or the hook Ėup to a VCR or the DVR.  For starters IF you donít have a DVR, a halfway decent one starts at $200.00.  All of these hidden cameras include the receiver that the company "conveniently" doesnít show or fails to mention.  All of these cameras by law use the 2.4 GHz frequency to send their transmission.  Now comes the good partÖ..  Because nearly every electronic household device uses this same frequency, I.e., cordless telephones, remote controls for TVís, microwave ovens, car alarms, garage door openers as well as remotes for kids toys these signals are constantly distorted.  Although they will advertise these 2.4 GHz signals with great signal strength what they wonít tell you is the ideal set up is a direct straight path with no obstacles in the way, nor will they mention all the interference from all these aforementioned common devices is constantly interrupting the signal.  Although your neighborís TV remote wonít interfere with your TV it will cause a blip and distortion of the cameras signals to the receiver during their transmission.  What the VCR or the DVR will record is "white static".  Additionally as mentioned anything in the way of these signals from the camera including walls will also cause distortion and fuzzy images.

Here is how these cameras will work with no problem: You be the judge. 

You first determine the area ideal for the hidden camera. This of course is non negotiable.  Secondly the receiver now has to be in true "sight" of the camera, not blocked by walls or furniture or youíll have just distorted fuzzy images.  But before you can locate the receiver unit you have to make sure itís near an outlet because this NEEDS powerIt has a transformer than needs to be plugged inThe next step is the VCR or DVR needs to be directly wired to the receiver.  This means you either run a long wire to wherever your VCR or DVR is located. (probably on top of your TV)

Letís create an average surveillance job: You want to place one of these "hidden" cameras in a specific location: What if there is no place to HIDE the receiver or NO outlet near the receiver or worse, no outlet in the area at all. Now you need to find a power source for the receiver which results in the signals not being receivedÖ..or inhibits the receiver from receiving the signals. Then you have to move your VCR or DVR to connect to the receiver??

Here is exactly how these "hidden" cameras ideally work. In a large room with the receiver directly in line with the camera plugged into an outlet and the VCR or DVR placed right next to it. Lastly make sure none of your neighbors within 700 ft are using their cordless telephones or their remote controls to their TV. What these companies advertise is not so hidden after all and doesnít work in real applications. This is why professional surveillance companies do not use wireless cameras and either should you.

For a "nanny cam" or just overall surveillance camera for your home or office check out our Art Surveillance Camera OR the Safe Home Covert Cameras. These cameras use no wireless transmitters, receivers or require any hook up to a VCR or DVR because everything is enclosed in one fantastic unit!

Please do not be fooled by these "hidden" camera examples below or any surveillance camera using wireless frequency, transmitters and receivers.  All these units use the 2.4 GHz frequency that is common to many household appliances. As such signals are susceptible to interference. The very conspicuous receiver with an antenna not shown in their ads needs to be located 8-12 ft away in a direct path and plugged into a power receptacle or any images are likely to be totally fuzzy. Furthermore the receiver then needs to be connected to either a VCR or a Digital Video Recorder if there is to be any surveillance recorded. As mentioned in our opening paragraph the vendors selling these units typically post a picture and imply these units are easy to set up. They purposely do not give you all the details. If you desire a surveillance system you can watch on-line from work or anywhere in the world check out the new Logitech Alert System. The set up is only 10 minutes and with an internet connection you can watch and listen in to your cameras from anywhere in the world!.
